The policy guidelines provide working mechanism for GPVS. However, flexibility has also been inbuilt in the policy guideline to modify and amend it, if need arises, so that it remains valid for a long time to come.
According to policy guideline, the Governing Board will set policies and strategies in line with the agreed purposes, principles and scope of the organisation. The Board will also set operational guidelines, work plans and budget for the NGO and policy and programme support. It will assist the internal workings of the NGO by setting criteria for membership of, and appointing in collaboration with the donor partners, review panels and/or support groups.
The Board may also establish a framework for monitoring and periodic independent evaluation of performance and financial accountability of activities supported by the NGO.
